One year ago former Bolingbrook, Illinois police officer Drew Peterson was found guilty of murdering his third wife Kathleen Savio and has since been sharing his dismay with his new living conditions and his fear of death while incarcerated.
Since Peterson’s incarceration he has been in contact with his former attorney Joel Brodsky who tells of Peterson’s fear of dying in prison, My Fox Chicago reports Friday September 6.
Peterson wrote: "Joel, did you ever feel that something was going to happen before it does? I feel I'm going to die in here. If the inmates don't get me I'm gonna be killed by the cruel guards." Shared from a letter dated April 11, 2013.
Peterson shares his experience and his current living conditions.
"Prison is all the nightmarish things that one would think," Peterson writes. "I'm in a cell the size of a broom closet, peeling paint, rusting fixtures, I have no TV or anything and I haven't been out since I got here. The food is terrible and I'm again in solitary confinement."
Joel Brodsky says he's gotten nine letters from Drew Peterson since he started serving his time and the former police sergeant has made new friends since his incarceration in February, according to Brodsky.
"I know he's writing a lot of letters, I mean he's got a number of pen pals, he's told me." Brodsky says. "So he stays busy writing letters and corresponding with people and, thinking about his appeal and I know he writes his children often."
When Brodsky was asked if there have been any confessions in the letters, he responded, "None that I could tell you about, but no, that wouldn't even be something I would ask him about."
Drew Peterson is serving a 38-year sentence at Menard Correctional Center downstate.
